Woods, a 14-time major champion, was getting ahead of stories to come next week about the one-year anniversary of the traffic accident that led to revelations about his infidelity and the destruction of his once-iconic image.

‘It’s about time I basically again made a connection to fans who have been pretty great to me in the past year,’ Woods said.

The sex scandal has led to the divorce of Woods and Elin Nordegren and his fall from the world number one ranking after a 2010 season in which he went winless for the first time in his career.

‘If that didn’t happen. I don’t think I would be as blessed and as balanced as I am now,’ Woods said.

‘It was a slow gradual process when I had slipped away from my core values and my upbringing. It wasn’t a pleasant feling. It wasn’t a good place to be. It was very destructive.’
